Gas prices UP!

According to a widely-circulating story in the news this morning, gas prices are up about 20 cents in the last 2 weeks.

The lowest average price is $2.22 (Anchorage); the highest $3.10 (San Francisco). (Based on my ride-by casual observations, the "budget" stations here in Boise seem to be at the low end of the range, at least for now.)

Since I mostly ride a bike, it's mostly just a matter of curiosity for me. The last time I bought gas was just before Christmas, when the Missus sent me to Twin Falls to fetch her momma up here for the holidays.

But if you drive a Hummer or a Ford Excursion... get ready! I'm no Nostradamus, but I'll go out on a limb and boldly predict that gas will be more NEXT summer, than it was LAST summer.
